    I got invited down to look at the new A1 today, I must say it looks lovely!

    Thought I'd post them here for the A1 members :)

    He said the 2.0 will be out early next year, never mentioned an S1 at this point!

    But this would do me with the 200bhp in, love the alloys and the chronos grey/black paint mix:

    Looks great, thanks for sharing the photos!

    What dealer was it out of interest? I am based North London and trying to find somewhere round here. Spotted one on a car transporter this morning

    The new A1 is on the Configurator for the entry engines, it’s certainly not cheap... add a few more £’s on for the 2 litre.

    From what I have read the release models haven’t been very well received by the motoring press.

    New A1 is looking far too expensive. The negative comments on the inferior plastics (hard doors etc) make it look even more expensive.

    I have an A3 and thought the new A1 would be my next car but the base a3 is more than my a3 was 2 years ago given that discount and pcp contribution will be less.

    Ditto. 2015 A3 S-Line S-Tronic with comfort pack and a few other options was £24k. The new A1 similarly kitted out comes in around £28k. For a 1.0 3 cylinder jobby. WTF!? I’d rather get a Golf GTI for that money.

    This silly pricing has pushed me away for my next motor especially when you look at what the competition is offering, latest gen BMW’s are much nicer looking inside and out.

    Lots of great cars on the 2nd hand market now for sub £20k.

    Fact. A number of online reviews comment on the hard scratchy plastics on the doors, the wobbly centre console and wobbly interior light above the mirror. These things really matter because it’s precisely what distinguishes Audi from other VAG products. If buyers don’t care about such trivialities they buy Seat or Skoda and save a ton of cash in the process. This is a big mistake by Audi. They might get away with it on the A1, but A3 buyers will be much less forgiving.

    Took one out for a spin today, quite like it! The 30 TFSI is a decent little engine and suits it well with more than ample performance. The interior isn’t quite up to the standard of my TT but it’s still a good design and feels premium. The new touchscreen MMI system is very intuitive and easy to use. Nice that they include Virtual Cockpit as standard too

    Only thing I don’t like is it has an old fashioned flip key with no push button start unless you pay extra for keyless entry. Standard equipment levels otherwise seem high, and if you do want a few options they seem reasonably priced.

    I think next year the entry level model will get cheaper as they’ll re-introduce the 95PS 1.0 TFSI. They’ll also add the 150PS 1.5 TFSI and 190PS 2.0 TFSI units for those after more power. But for now the 116PS they’re currently only offering actually suits it very nicely.

    For £20k it’s priced about right and will likely be popular. Dealers are offering around 5% discount with a little haggling. Will be a good few months before there is any real saving to be had buying an ex-demo or pre-reg

    No problem and sorry for the late reply mate, it was @ Warrington Audi.

    I agree about the Golf GTI or even the Polo GTi+ for around £21k (after discount)!!!.

    A mate of mine just had a 48 hour test drive on a JCW mini clubman, he said he was smiling the entire time he was driving it and that was even with his kids in the back! A low mileage 18 plate for around £25k.

    The A1 has grown so much. 200mm shorter than an A3 and about 15/20mm difference everywhere else. It basically the same size of the 3dr A3 ffs. Dread to think what size a small hatch will be in 10 years, probably the size of a RR Evoque.

    See a lot are already on Audi approved site and some at ridiculous prices. Over £29k for a launch spec model on sale at my local dealer! Madness, as a a few miles up the road the identical car is just over £23k.

    Also the best Carwow quote I had today for a new A1 is 4.8% off list.

    Yet parking spaces stay the same size...too small!

    lol they are delusional if they think people will pay that!

    It's been mentioned before on here, think I'd be saving myself £7k and getting something like this if I was after a small used car https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201810301958824
